It is understood, as wa* there stated, that interests are at work which will probably pusn the project to a succes:-fu1 conclusion if the necessary aid is provided along the line, and a special effort will be necessary between Car- linvllle and this place.

The orRfttt o! tn« *ttf tdmmutrstion ,o»me out last evening with) A colttnm •rttete to defenie ot the hast? »ot» on °* the Council on the Eleotno U^hi o.a*i* tlon. Among other things it falielf asserted that the TawtoaAPa had ber«« tofora urged the acceptance of th» Thompson-Houston proposition. The THLEOBAPH did no such thing. It has long favored the substitution of electric light* for the present wretched system ot street lighting tor which the city pays a bi£ price and gets a poor return; but it ^never favored any particular company knowing nothing of the comparative merits of the different systems. And this is just the point! the Council acted ao hastily in the matter of granting privileges to the Sprmgheld company that it could .not have known whether, or not, it was doing the best thing for the interest* of the city. The proposition of the Springfield companv was introduced at last Tuesday's meeting, referred to the committee on Gas, and reported on favorably at the same meeting, and important rights, privileges and franchises at once granted the company, without proper investigation of the merits of the proposition, or suitable comparison of the pl*n of lighting and heating proposed with other systems, itaoh action Is not defensible and the Democrat makes a mistake in. trying to bolster it up. The Democrat bases its defense of this action on the ground that the Springfield company u composed ot reputable gentlemen and that the 'emergency* was ''pressing." Well, now we would like to know just what that "pressing emergency" was. Will the Council's organ explain f There is a suspi» ciou that something was -pressing, but what was it? The TELEGRAPH has no prejudice against the Springfield Co. It gladly admits that the corporators are all gentlemen of high standing; but that does not prove that they represent the best and cheapest system of lighting and heating in the world, so incomparable, indeed, that ao comparison ot 1U merits with other systems is needed. Per contra, if their system and the proposition they make will bear inspection, as they doubtless will, why should the corporators, as honorable men, expect to have them rushed through the Council without proper examination or~ comparison P vVhat was the "pressing emergency involv- ved?" , ••';;/;. -'. "..'.' ~' ,'"!'. Now the TELEGRAPH wants to see the electric light in Alton, and it has. no bias in fnvor of; or against, any particular system; but it does object to the Council's granting a valuable franchise to any company in a hasty and irregular manner, and without due investigation and comparison. But we wish to add this: that from what we know of the corporators,/none of whom were present at the meeting) wedj not beiiove that the* were par* ties to the irregular prooedure > by which their franchise was granted.

AT LARGE. -A lady who lives on Twelfth street says that the cows that run at large, eight being seen within IHSS than a block in that neighborhood, at one lime this morning, damage her place considerably, entering the grounds whenever the gate U not securely fastened, and committing ravages almost beyond repairs. ACCIDENT—The C. & A. lightning express was five and a half hours late this morning, arriving here after 12 o'clock. A freight o»r at Plamview, standing on a side track, was blown by the wind so that it projected on the main track and when the lightning express came along the engine struck the freight car wrecking it and the engine and tearing up a portion of the track. A track was built around the disabled engine that the trains might pass. Nobody was hurt by the accident. The Chicago accommodation arrived a few minutes after the other train.
